Kava Colada Kava Cocktail Recipe

Kava Colada Recipe

This alcohol-free twist on a piña colada is a playful, tasty way to mask kava’s earthiness. Makes 2 to 3 servings.


  • 3/4 cup pineapple juice (enough to make 6 pineapple ice cubes)
  • 4 Tbsp. Medium grind kava kava powder
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 1oz coconut cream
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 6 ice cubes (made from water)
  • 1/2 tsp. Single Origin Roasted Cacao Powder
  • 2-3 organic orange wedges


  1. Freeze pineapple juice in an ice cube tray. A 3/4 cup of juice should make 6 ice cubes, enough for this recipe. Or fill an ice cube tray with 2 cups juice to have leftover pineapple ice cubes for another time.
  2. Combine kava kava powder, coconut milk, coconut cream and orange juice in a blender.
  3. Blend for 4 minutes and strain out kava pulp with a nut bag
  4. Add 6 pineapple ice cubes to the blender and 6 ice cubes made from water. Pulse blend to crush the ice. Do not fully blend to avoid melting the ice.
  5. Pour in a festive glass. Sprinkle with cacao powder and garnish with an orange wedge.

Note: You can make a non-caffeinated chai tea and freeze those into cubes in place of the water ice cubes for a bit more spice and flavor.

Smooth but Powerful

The effects are pretty top notch and the taste is smooth. I would describe this as balanced but leaning more towards heavy. It starts out a bit uplifting and then is much more relaxing after an hour or so. It's also one of the more interesting kavas i've tasted with a nice smooth smoky flavor. I think this would be my second favorite kava in the current lineup, and I would order it again if it became available regularly.

Locked on the couch

I had to wait for reverse tolerance to go away, but man did it hit me today!! I picked this up for a alternative to anxiety and stress. Feels like a warm blanket on me, pretty heavy with 4 tbsp. For first time with kava I really enjoy it!

Unique kava with pleasant feeling

This kava definitely makes you feel good and more at ease without making you feel like knocking out. I really enjoyed it.

Just sublime for me

Smooth and not starch heavy so its kneading pretty clean for me but still produces a nice milky bowl. Mellow taste and low nausea from 6 shells on an empty stomach. Effects are balanced as can be for me, begins to linger after shell 2 and i find my sessions with this prolonged because of that. Not to shabby.

Start my day off right

I'm very pleased with my new kava find. Great customer service too! Going to reorder more for sure. Hopefully it's still in stock. 2 giant heaping teaspoons and a good squeeze and I am good to go.
